Nursing Education

Nursing education is a process through which individuals learn to practice safe and effective nursing care for clients with health needs. Nursing courses provide chronological nursing knowledge and experiences which enable the student to develop certain defined competencies (professional behaviors, communication, clinical decision-making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration, and managing care) necessary for the safe practice of nursing care in an organized, competent manner to individuals, families, groups or communities.

Nursing education has the responsibility to prepare graduates for employment in a rapidly changing healthcare environment where the focus is providing cost-effective, high-quality health care to diverse populations. Effective nursing curricula design is based on stated outcome criteria that provide students with a systematic framework for learning, safe nursing practice, and intellectual fulfillment.

Nursing education teaches students to provide a safe, effective care environment through the management of the client’s care while emphasizing safety and infection control. Clients are assisted with health promotion as well as the maintenance of health. Client’s psychosocial and physiological integrity are protected through nursing care activities that provide comfort and pharmacological therapies, reduce risk potential, and promote physiological adaptation.

The nursing program is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing and the Commision for Independent Education. The student who has met all educational and institutional requirements from Hope College of Arts & Sciences is eligible to have his/her name submitted to the Florida Board of Nursing to be considered as a candidate for the National Council Licensure Examination for the Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN).
